You might be too young to remember this, but "Rocket" Ismail, a Muslim, would always do the "Tebow" kneel after scoring a touchdown. This was about 20 years ago and I don't recall any controversy or any blowback on "Rocket". I don't recall any sportswriters calling him out. You can see him do it on video clips on YouTube. I'm too busy to search right now.
